Transfer Information

Transferring from USU Eastern

Students planning to continue their education after leaving USU Eastern should stop by the Advising Office. Here, students can find information from all state colleges and universities

Students are encouraged to surf the Internet to explore educational opportunities. We have a computer in the Advising Office with Internet access where students can visit college and university websites in Utah, across the country, and around the world.

If you are thinking about transferring, the Academic Advising office is the place to begin. Please view the Transfer Steps below to help you get started.

Steps to Prepare for Transfer

  • Get applications (admissions, housing, financial aid, etc.) submitted by set deadlines. Be sure to check with the school(s) you are planning on transferring to for these deadlines.
  • Send your transcripts to each school you apply to.
    • You can have them mailed directly from USU Eastern. You may have to send more than one, so be prepared. See transcripts requests for detailed information.
    • If you have transcripts from other colleges, contact their Records Office. Most schools require the following information: full name, dates of attendance, birth date, social security number, current address, signature, and where to send - including a fee. 
  • Attend transfer days and meet with campus representatives when they visit our campus.
  • Make an individualized visit to check out the campus. Meet individually with an advisor, talk with representatives from job placement, housing, etc.
  • Enroll in courses which will transfer within your major - check general catalog of the school you are transferring to for degree requirements and articulation to ensure course equivalencies. Your academic advisor can be a big help.
  • Get financial aid paperwork completed and sent as soon as it becomes available (usually after the first of the year). The school to which you transfer will often require a supplemental application form. 
  • Students transferring with less than 30 credit hours will need to include their high school transcripts and ACT scores with their admissions application.
  • Plan to send another transcript once your final grades and degree have been posted to your transcript (May or August, depending on when you complete the degree requirements).
  • Online applications are usually not processed until the fee has been paid - either by mail or credit card.
  • Start requesting letters of recommendation from your professors and/or advisors. You may need them for scholarship or departmental applications.
  • Attend a new or transfer student orientation at the school to which you plan to transfer.
